Echols County Sheriff's officers, along with agents from the GBI and the South Georgia Drug Task Force, raided the home Tuesday night. A father, daughter and another woman were all taken into custody and charged with manufacturing marijuana.

William Clarence Hamm the Third, his girlfriend, Wanda Johnson, and his daughter, Monica Hamm, have all been charged with felony manufacturing of marijuana.
